“A little too much walking and not enough historical stories”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

This walk had a rave review just recently in the UK press so we thought since we were in Ottawa we would go. The guide Drew is a pleasant young man and a good raconteur. However there seemed too little content to justify the fee of 17dollars each as the walk between stops were quite lengthy. We spoke to no one else on the walk as the group was not chatty and we skipped the pub stops. All in all it was ok but perhaps over priced.

“Not exactly what I expected ... It was better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2011

This walking tour turned out to be better than I expected. Instead of a Pub Crawl type thing where the emphasis is on drinking this turned out to be a historical walking tour with a stop for a few drinks at pubs along the way. We stopped at one bar mid tour and another at the very end so it wasn't super expensive drink wise and no one was very drunk at the end of the tour.

The two hour duration meant that when we started at Seven PM and ended at Nine there was still time to get in some drinking if we wanted to. A leisurely pace meant it was a great opportunity to get to know some of the others walking along while learning about some of Ottawa's "shadier" past. Who knew history could be so interesting?
